That weird squawking sound at the beginning of Sugar Mag is the sound of a Vox wah-wah pedal that has been accidentally plugged in backwards. David Gilmour would take advantage of this sound not much later on the Pink Floyd albums Meddle and The Wall, but at this show Garcia probably just wigged out and yelled "Steve! What the f--- is that, & make it go away!"

Apart from maybe the best "That's It" in 2 years and a really nice "Good Lovin'", this show doesn't really stand out, although the recording does. It's been said the setlist is as typical of '71 as of '70; maybe that's the source of my reservations. Garcia's Strat neck & mid tone on Other One sounds sweet.

This show smolders and, at the right spots, explodes with intensity. Great example of Pig's strong presence and leadership in 1970. Awesome recording as well!

Subject: I can't believe that
this is a 1970 aud recording...it's that clear and true! Considering all the patches required as noted by Kevin et al, the result is absolutely awesome - as clear and sweet as many auds from the late 80's. This may not be the best show from 1970 but it is, in my estimation, the best recording. And an average show from this era is as good or better than anything after '81 IMHO. Thanks to the tapers who preserved history, the folks who did all the fine work making these shows available, and the archive for this awesome site. Peace

Thanx Kevin. This is definitely one of the two best sounding 1970 audience recordings I have encountered here. I have only been grabbing Flac files, so havn't heard them all. Not the greatest show by this year's high standards, but a fun listen nonetheless. Good Bob rockers, a snaky Smokestack, and check out the intro on a great Deep Elem. I am playing That's it for the Other One>Sugar Mags on my radio show this week. Peace
